Francisco Eguía & Fabián Blanco, Ejot ATF Fasteners de Mexico y Compania, S. en C., Spanish Presentation
Download Presentation

"Lightweight design" is one of the central activities of many automotive companies. Intelligent light weight design concepts continue to be of crucial importance for the compliance with future CO2 limits. For this reason, special importance is given to the development of a new generation of fasteners suitable for lightweight construction.

5:45 PM - 6:15 PM Six Sigma Methods and Process Control Techniques
Andy Lesko, MacDermid Enthone, English Presentation
Download Presentation

Six Sigma and process control are two powerful methods for maximizing quality and reducing costs. While most factories use some of the many tools in each, which tools are best can be confusing. Time is always limited. Do you make a process map or a CE Matrix? Should you track Cp or Cpk or Pp or Ppk? Should you do a regression or a Do? We’ll talk about these and more in this presentation where we explore an easy to understand Six Sigma approach and the best tools for each phase. We’ll discuss when you need and when you don’t need Six Sigma, and talk about effective use of statistical process control (SPC). Many real world examples will be used to show how applying these tools can have an immediate effect on product quality and operational costs.
